Of all the cities in the United States, the one that seems to resonate most with me in terms of architecture and interior design is Atlanta, specifically the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta. I adore the lovingly preserved old homes and the huge, lushly landscaped yards. Atlanta is a city that appreciates traditional design – with a generous dash of Southern flair – and I simply cannot get enough. I love perusing Atlanta MLS listings, and when I found this one, located on prestigious Tuxedo Road, my heart about stopped beating.
Built in the Greek Revival Style in 1955, this home was completely redesigned by Norman Askins in 2006, with decorative design details reminiscent of old Charleston. It includes all of my favorite things including Zuber’s Jardin Francais hand-blocked wallpaper in the dining room, classic black and white marble tile in the entry, exquisite millwork, an abundance of antiques, and beautifully manicured grounds designed by Richard Anderson with a formal English boxwood garden. Let’s take a look at the listing images!
This magnificent home truly has it all, and it is gracious, traditional, elegance personified. To see more, you can find the listing here and you won’t want to miss the fabulous virtual tour…. I have watched it about 10 times!
